I can’t wait till V’s hair get thicker and longer. I love little pigtails on girls. They’re just so adorable.

Today, we made polish potato dumplings. Z loves to help in the kitchen and he has gotten much better at following directions.

So cool! I love repurposing.

a little trick i learned

Simply cut along the solid lines and fold inward on the dotted lines.  Glue some velcro (or find sticky-backed velcro) onto the closing piece to make it stay closed.  Can be used for pretty much anything.

SOme very interesting ways to eat radishes. Must try. Thanks for posting.

grow it cook it can it

I love spring salads with baby greens with thinly sliced radishes and mustard vinaigrette, and radishes are lovely roasted in the oven and tossed with brown butter.  Every spring, though, we always end up with a bit too much and I end up needing to preserve some for later to keep them from going in the compost.

Just before bedtime, I put V in her crib and pulled the crib thingy up so she’d be safe. I was just getting her a sleeper when I turned to see her trying to pull herself up So I helped her and stood her up. She was so proud to be standing and holding on to the crib rail on her own.

Z loves to climb these days. Anything he can climb, he will. He’s even gotten in trouble with M for climbing the patio furniture and hanging over the deck. Whenever we are outside he loves to climb the gate.
